Lots of new destinations for Lufthansa Express Rail

Easy booking, easy connections and networked mobility: from December 2018, business travellers can also use Lufthansa Express Rail to get to Frankfurt Airport from the railway stations in Freiburg and Ulm. The expansion should be completed in early summer next year with the addition of Essen, Bochum, Duisburg, Wuppertal, Oberhausen and Bonn. Lufthansa Express Rail is already available from Aachen, Cologne, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Erfurt, Göttingen, Kassel, Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Nuremberg and Würzburg. This gives Lufthansa passengers the choice of how to travel to their flight from Frankfurt. At the same time, these cities become destinations on the Lufthansa network, and can be booked directly worldwide.

Up to eight daily connections per departure point offer convenient connections to Lufthansa flights in Frankfurt. Lufthansa Express Rail passengers also benefit from a reserved seat on the train, Miles & More miles and a guaranteed connection. If a train or flight is unexpectedly delayed, Lufthansa transfers its guests to a connecting flight free of charge. Business Class passengers travel first class on Deutsche Bahn, and have access to DB lounges.

Check-in and seat allocation for the Lufthansa Express Rail Service are carried out online via or mobile via the Lufthansa app. The boarding pass serves as a ticket for the booked Lufthansa Express Rail connection. At the AIRail terminal in Frankfurt, Lufthansa Express Rail guests can conveniently check in their luggage and pick it up again.
